Revivify Your Skin 

Every day the skin is exposed to countless pollutants and environmental factors that cause damage and make the skin age faster than it should. Harsh sun rays, UV exposure, air pollutants like smog, and chemicals in our everyday grooming products are impossible to avoid. Fortunately, dermaplaning at The Piazza Center in Austin, Texas, is a non-invasive, powerful solution to restore the skin to a younger, healthier state.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a long-used aesthetic treatment that removes the top layers of the skin, which are those that are more susceptible to damage. In addition to minimizing the appearance of blemishes, acne scars, and discoloration, dermaplaning also effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles, helping the skin to achieve a smooth, silky feel. 

Dermaplaning uses a delicate blade and, for this reason, is sometimes called a ‘scalpel facial.’ By removing the old skin cells, dermaplaning makes room for new, healthy skin to emerge. Dermaplaning also triggers the body into developing more collagen, a protein vital to making skin look hydrated and youthful.

What Is A Dermaplaning Session Like?

The first step is cleansing the skin of creams, makeup, and other impurities and prepping it for the procedure. Then, a sterile blade is carefully and lightly passed along the surface of the skin to remove scar tissue, old skin cells, and other debris. Dermaplaning is not painful and does not require the use of chemicals. Most treatments take no more than an hour, though a series of treatments spaced months apart is typically recommended to achieve desired results.

A Multimodal Approach Based On Science

At The Piazza Center, we believe that a three-pronged approach is the most successful way to provide skin rejuvenation that looks great. Using advanced imaging technology called Skin Visia Analysis, we perform a comprehensive assessment of three areas: 

  • The texture and tone of the skin
  • Muscle movement
  • Bone structure & fat volume

These three elements function together and determine how your particular face ages, which is why they need to be treated in unison for effective results. Once our team has a clear, objective understanding of your needs, a customized Annual Skin Care Plan is created just for you. 

How Do I Know If Dermaplaning Is For Me?

Since there are no abrasive chemicals involved, dermaplaning is safe for almost all skin types. Most patients tolerate the treatment quite well and are pleased with the reduction of dry skin, age spots, dullness, and fine lines and wrinkles they experience afterward. Dermaplaning is also great for reducing the chances of future acne breakouts because it removes debris from the pores.

Those who have active acne breakouts or open wounds on the face should talk to our team of skin care coaches for alternative treatments, however, as dermaplaning may increase discomfort. Those who have recently gotten fillers or injectable wrinkle-relaxers should also postpone treatment for at least a week.

Protecting Your Skin After Dermaplaning

Aftercare is vital to maintaining good results after dermaplaning, and our team will give you a customized guide to follow after your appointment. In general, patients need to avoid direct sunlight, and wear medical-grade sunscreen as well as a hat with full coverage if spending time outdoors. Skin care products with retinol or exfoliants should also be avoided for a few days. While it is okay to wear makeup after your session, we recommend a breathing period of at least a day.
